How to print CPE+ on UM3

Posted · How to print CPE+ on UM3

Hi All,

I need print very strong parts from materials such as CPE+ or PC. I know that UM3 not support CPE+ and PC for this moment. But I have few questions.

1. Heating bed

How UM3 can provide 110deg celsia which is recomended for printing this materials, when my UM3 can make only 100C? I use DIY door for closing print chamber.

2.print core

When I try print (transparent CPE+) on AA core, I have many carbonize parts on final result. Support from Ultimaker means that for this materials will be release completely new print core for this materials?

If is only about trying find good settings for printing on current printcores I can try find him :)

3.Date of release new cores

are some information about releasing all new features for UM3? Printcores, Cura?

Thanks for reply

    Update firmware on printer.

    Last stable version of Cura.

    I am printing now with CPE+ (Ultimaker transparent) , 0.6 profile on Cura, an coach at HO scale (1:87).

    As soon as i finish i will upload photos.

    PS. My bed is at 109 degree Celsius, no door.

    The carbonized pieces you mentioned (Black Stuff in the print) is probably from the filament absorbing moisture. If you are using PVA for any reason, you may be picking some of that up as well.

    But as Gigi said, Latest firmware and software will make the printing more automatic since there are now presets that allow for these materials and their associated temps.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
